2019 Summative ELPAC Administration and Scoring Trainings

The 2019 Summative ELPAC testing window is February 1 through May 31, 2019. To prepare for this test administration, there will be 24 Summative ELPAC Administration and Scoring Trainings held statewide.

Attendance at Statewide Trainings

LEAs will receive an allocation of seats for trainings based on their number of English learners. A list of dates and locations for statewide ELPAC Administration and Scoring Trainings will be sent to LEAs.

All LEA and/or county staff who intend to provide a regional training must also attend this training before conducting their own. The training will follow a "training-of-trainers" model, designed so that attendees can provide in-person training to their own LEA.

A portion of the training day will be divided into two groups: kindergarten through grade 5 in one room and grades 6 through 12 in another room. It is recommended that you plan accordingly and bring one trainer for the lower grades and one trainer for the upper grades, if applicable.

Training Overview

The 2019 Summative ELPAC Administration and Scoring Training will provide an overview of the test administration. A majority of the training day will be spent on the administration and scoring of the Speaking domain.


Registration will open on Wednesday, August 15, 2018. In August, LEA ELPAC Coordinators will receive an email containing registration information for their LEA. Due to the limited number of seats at each training, only the LEA ELPAC Coordinator will be allowed to register participants for trainings. Each LEA has been allocated a specific number of seats to attend the 2019 Summative ELPAC Administration and Scoring Trainings.

Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis, until each training site is full. LEAs may register all of their staff for one location, or each participant for separate locations.

Regional Workshops

Please note that all ELPAC Test Examiners are required to be trained to administer the Summative ELPAC 2019. To accommodate your LEA’s training needs, many regional workshops around the state will be available. As each becomes available, the regional workshops will be posted on the ELPAC website on the Summative ELPAC Regional Training List web page.
